Posted 31 October 2006 - 01:43 AM

In my taskbar (by the clock) there is an icon, switches between a yellow quesiton mark and a yellow "X" on a blue cirlce. If i click on it, it takes me to a website for VirusBursters. If i put my mouse over it, it says it's "Critical System Errors" and if i click on it, it opens a new tab in my browser and takes me to Virusbursters webpage. Occasionally a balloon pops up that says "Critical System Errors" and then it says different messages everytime, and clicking on it just brings me to the Virusbursters website.

I've followed the Preparation Guide, running adware, and all the subsequent scans, and have installed the Zone Alarm firewall. I just want this thing off. It's doesn't seem to be doing much except the occasional balloon that pops up, which is annoying and whatever else it does behind the scenes. Thanks a bunch for any help. Here's my log:

Hi and welcome. My name is Kairis and I will be helping you.
You have Smitfraud-infection! But don't worry; we'll get you cleaned up!
Please follow my steps in the right order...
We'll start with this:
Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.
Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Hello ruof, thanks for the logs. I apologize for the delay...
Okey, lets fix it:
Step 1:
You should print out these instructions,
or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode,
because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.
You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes"
by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.
The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected.
You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".
The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process;
if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.
A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process;
please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply along with a fresh HijackThis log.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Step 2:
Download : GMER
* Unzip it and double-click GMER.exe
* Click the rootkit-tab and click scan.
* Do NOT check the "Show All" box during the scan!!
* Once done, click Copy.
* This will copy the results to clipboard.
* Paste the results in your next reply

  • This will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it. This is only a short scan.
  • Once the short scan has finished, select the drives that you want to scan.
  • Select all drives. A red dot shows which drives have been chosen.
  • Click the green arrow > to the right and the scan will begin.
  • At the first infection, select 'Yes to all' if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
  • When the scan has finished, click the "Select all/select none" toggle button (if available) next to the files found: Posted Image
  • Then click the green cup icon right below
    and select Move incurable as you'll see in next image:
    Posted Image
    This will move any infected files to the %userprofile%\DoctorWeb\quarantaine-folder that can't be cured (in case if we need samples).
  • Then, from the main Dr.Web CureIt menu (top left), click File and choose save report list
  • Save the report to your desktop. The report will be called DrWeb.csv
  • Close Dr.Web Cureit and Restart your computer to completely remove any stubborn files in reboot.
  • After the restart, post the contents of the Dr.Web.csv log file which you saved.

Make sure you are protected with a known anti-virus software and a firewall

Computer Virus - A computer virus is a dangerous computer program with the characteristic feature of being able to generate copies of itself, and thereby spreading. Additionally most computer viruses have a destructive payload that is activated under certain conditions.

Antivirus software is a type of application you install to protect your system from viruses, worms and other malicious code. Most antivirus programs will monitor traffic while you surf the Web, scan incoming email and file attachments and periodically check all local files for the existence of any known malicious code.

Firewall - an extra layer of security built into computers on a network, which restricts access to systems from the outside world. Firewalls protect against hackers and malicious intruders.

Windows XP will supply its own firewall but it will only monitor traffic in one direction. It does not block outgoing traffic. Simply put, Windows XP contains a mediocre firewall. This firewall is NO replacement for a dedicated software solution.

Recommended Anti-Virus Programs

Avast - Free Edition
AVG Free Version

Recommended Firewalls

Sunbelt Kerio Firewall
ZoneAlarm Free Edition

Next, if they're not already present, I would recommend the download and installation of some of the following anti-spyware programs, and the updating of them regularly. Having only a firewall and anti-virus software is not enough to keep you safe from spyware, as both are mostly weak against the onslaught of spyware today out there on the internet :
  • Ad-Aware SE - Ad-Aware SE is an excellent program against spyware but usually adware. Works well together with Spybot S&D. It's free. A tutorial can be found here.
  • Spybot Search & Destroy - Spybot - Search & Destroy can detect and remove a multitude of adware files and modules from your computer. Spybot also can clean program and Web-usage tracks from your system, which is especially useful if you share your computer. Modules chosen for removal can be sent directly to the included file shredder, ensuring complete elimination from your system. For advanced users, it allows you to fix Registry inconsistencies related to adware and to malicious program installations. The handy online-update feature ensures that Spybot always has the most current and complete listings of adware, dialers, and other uninvited system residents. Spybot S&D goes great together with Ad-Aware SE as a anti-spyware/adware arsenal.

    Version 1.4 has the first native multi-installation scanner, noticeably faster than the previous version during scans, and has improved the tools and updated the interface. Spybot S&D is absolutely free. A tutorial can be found here.
  • Spyware Blaster - SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs. SpywareBlaster is free. A tutorial can be found here.
  • IE Spyad - IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone, so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all. It basically prevents any downloads, cookies, scripts from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites. IE-SPYAD is free. A tutorial can be found here.
  • Spyware Doctor - Spyware Doctor is a top-rated malware & spyware removal utility that detects, removes and protects your PC from thousands of potential spyware, adware, trojans, keyloggers, spybots and tracking threats. Protect your privacy and computing habits from prying eyes and virtual trespassers with the help of Spyware Doctor. This one you will have to pay, but it is worth every penny.
  • Windows Defender (Beta 2) - Free program from Microsoft that helps protect your computer against pop-ups, slow performance, and security threats caused by spyware and other unwanted software. It features Real-Time Protection, a monitoring system that recommends actions against spyware when it's detected, and a new streamlined interface that minimizes interruptions and helps you stay productive.
  • Fire Trust Sitehound - Firetrust introduces the SiteHound Toolbar - the safe way to browse the Internet. With SiteHound, when you browse the Internet, you're shown a warning page every time you go to a site which is a known scam, potentially loads viruses or spyware on to your computer, has questionable content or anything you would not consider reasonable. You are shown a warning page with information about that site. From there you can choose to enter the site or go back. SiteHound is a free add-on to Internet Explorer.
  • WinPatrol - WinPatrol uses a heuristic approach to detecting attacks and violations of your computing environment. Traditional security programs scan your hard drive searching for previously identified threats. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. You'll be removing dangerous new programs while others download new reference files. This one is free but has a "Plus" version that you can pay for.
  • A-squared - Free version can scan for worms, trojans, dialers and spyware. The non-free version has realtime-monitoring.
  • ewido anti-malware - Highly underrated from the beginning by most critics, ewido anti-malware offers protection from spyware, adware, trojans and dialers. The first time you download it, it will have realtime-monitoring. After the trial, the realtime-monitoring disappears but you will still be able to use it for scanning and removing present infections for free.
  • Spysweeper - Webroot's Spy Sweeper is well known for being one of the better spyware detection and removal programs. A 30-day free trial is available, however, it will not remove any spyware it detects; for that, you'll need to purchase the product.
  • SpywareGuard - An anti-virus program scans files before you open them and prevents execution if a virus is detected - SpywareGuard does the same thing, but for spyware! This one is absolutely free.

    ALERT: Before adding any other Spyware Detection and Removal programs always check the Rogue Anti-Spyware List for programs known to be misleading, mistaken, or just outright "Foistware". You can find the list here.
Alternate Web Browsers

Because of the way Microsoft Windows is designed, Microsoft Internet Explorer is deeply embedded into Windows. This allows spyware and adware deep access to the Windows operating system. In addition, Internet Explorer has "features" that are exploited by the spyware authors, such as ActiveX and other integrated scripting operations. Since IE comes with every copy of Windows, it's easy for the spyware authors to assume those features are present and active.

There are several alternative web browsers that have fewer vulnerabilities. Firefox and Opera are excellent choices to replace IE.

1) Mozilla Firefox - Firefox is a light, small, fast browser that has all the standard features of a web browser and has fewer vulnerabilities.
2) Opera Web Browser- Opera displays security information inside the address bar that indicates the level of security present on a site. Opera also provides protection against phishing attacks and automatically checks for security updates.

Note: All Microsoft Updates can only be downloaded/viewed through the Internet Explorer web browser.

Had a hard time with Malware? Then make your complaint and Stand Up and Be Counted HERE!!

You can post a complaint here in that forum through the purple link above. There is no need to register. Let your voice be heard on how and why you got infected and share it with others. Remember, a little complaint can go a long way to stopping the spread of malware on the internet.

Keep your Sun Java UP-TO-DATE!!!

It is very important not only to keep Sun Java up to date but also to remove older versions which have security holes and can be exploited by malware.

- To check what version you have installed, please go here. If your Java version does not match the latest one found [b]here
, you will need to update it by clicking your download choice (preferably 'Windows Online Installation') and following the instructions listed.

- If you do need to update your Sun Java, you must uninstall all older versions by the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel first.

Finally, keep your Microsoft-based operating system up to date!!!!!! Visit Microsoft Update regularly for the latest protection!!!!!

Goodbye and keep safe!! Don't let me see you around here again!!! ;)
